Le Fate Ignoranti

Aka "The Ignorant Fairies", "His Secret Life". When Antonia's husband dies in a car accident, she is stricken with grief. Whilst sorting through his possessions, she finds a love poem inscribed on the back of a painting that holds the key to a secret world. She discovers that she has been the innocent partner in an emotionally complex, yet tender and delicate love triangle. Through her loss she uncovers another world that her husband inhabited that ran parallel to the life she had with him. For seven years he had been having an affair with a man, Michele. From her initial confrontation with Michele, the bereaved pair experience phases of animosity, curiosity, attraction and passionately shared emotions. This is a genuine story of human spirit and raw honesty. From the director of "Hamam - The Turkish Bath".
